 Four teens flee from war-torn Nazi Germany on the ill-fated ship Wilhelm Gustloff: Joana, a Lithuanian nurse; Florian, a Prussian masquerading as a soldier; Emilia, a damaged Polish girl; and Alfred, a Nazi sailor. The haunting story of their struggle to survive and the secret each carries is told in alternating voices.
